Neuter your Kitty Sooner Rather than Later
|I don't want to be neutered|
Should you neuter your cat? There are those who have kittens who think it’s a dreadful idea, then there are those who don’t have cats and think all cats should be neutered and so get a reputation for not liking cats.
The truth of the situation is that unless you want your cat to have, or father, kittens of its own, you really need to consider neutering your cat as soon as possible. Many people think that they have to wait until their cat goes through her first “heat” cycle. This isn’t the case. She’ll be just fine if you get her done as soon as her system is mature enough to cope. Usually this is around 5 months old. If you wait and she has that cycle, be prepared for the loudly serenading “beaus” who come “calling” at 2am!
|I can see in the dark|
Although most cat owners can see the advantage of neutering their queen, not many realize that by neutering a tom, they not only stop him from populating the local area with off-spring, but they will take that “tom cat” smell away. The urine of a neutered tom cat usually smells less intrusive that that of a non-neutered one.
Regardless what some people may think, neutering your kitten isn’t a negative thing. If anything you are liberating your cat to go out into the world, confident that it’s not going to be helping to populate it!
